Detained Radio Biafra Director and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, spoke from his prison cell on Monday, July 25, maintaining that the restoration of the Biafra nation was not his individual decision but an assignment given to him by the Most High God (Chiukwu-okike-abiama) from the time he was conceived.
Kanu insisted that the restoration of Biafra is not to be toyed with, as it is a venture that must be achieved under the eagle eyes of the IPOB, led by himself, an uphill task that must be executed in order to deliver his people out of the contraption called Nigeria, without fear of death.
Comrade Emma Powerful, the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, who made the revelation yesterday in a press statement, quoted Nnamdi Kanu as telling some sympathizers who visited him in prison that he had even offered his life for the restoration of Biafra, “just as our Lord Jesus Christ offered His own life for the salvation of the human race.”
“The reason my mother gave birth to me was to restore and save Biafrans. I also promise that the Biafran race will be a cleaned up nation and all the people of Biafra will come back home, if they are living outside the country of the new nation. Our people will no longer wander on the road again”.
“How can I encourage the people of Biafra to work towards the upbringing of Nigeria, when we don’t speak the same language, don’t eat the same food and don’t have the same culture. In fact, if we come to their land to practice our culture and religion, we will be beheaded.
“Their women wear hijab, and Biafran women don’t, and on the point that our women don’t wear hijab and we don’t practice the same religion, they will see us as infidels and then, we will be beheaded. We are 100 per cent Christians. These people are Muslims who see killing as a culture.
“In Biafra where we originated from, it will be hard for our people to kill a human being, because in my language a human being is called MMANDU, which means in English language the beauty of life. Now, you can see it will never work, the only solution is Biafra.”
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu went on to say that are no regret in his dictionary over his detention, adding that “he is ready to spend a thousand years in a prison.”
He also made it clear that the Biafrans are not trying to secede from Nigeria because they are older than Nigeria. Kanu explained that one can talk about seceding if Nigeria is the one that colonized Biafra.
“But we are older than that contraption. So we can’t secede rather we just want to go back the way we were before the British came. It is Biafra or nothing, Nigerians knows that.” he said.
